My Ride: 2000 328i
My slightly lowered 328i

Hello all, been a lurker for some time, posted a few pics of my terd here and there. Figured I show how much my car hasent changed since I got it...

Brought it home with these 19's on stock suspension. (no pics because I hated it) Then lowered it.



The day I lowered it (4 days after buying it) I was pulled over and told my 19's were illegal because they had rub marks...



And Now its looked like this, just got a little lower.

Green wheels for a few weeks.



Then to silver.







Edit suspension and wheel specs:
17x9 et8 z3 Roadstars with 205/40 nankangs
Rokkor coilovers

Misleading title is misleading.

This magical stuff called spray paint.

I really want an mtech2 for the front, but the bumper would sit on the ground...

19s illegal because they had rub marks...? You live in soviet Russia or something? That makes absolutely NO sense.
That's like saying your wipers are illegal because they have leaves on them

*edit: this may seem like a lot, but I always get a laugh out of this.*

I'll elaborate. I got pulled over by one of my campus cops, the one that doesn't like me. Why, idk. He pulled me over for display of acceleration and wreck less driving because I didn't want to get caught behind a line of people and I avoided a huge pothole. When he pulled me over (right after lowering it, rolling the fenders, and on my first road test) he was flipping out on me for driving like a "dingdong" with people in the car. I explained I just lowered it, blah blah blah. He walks around and inspects the car. Prior to lowering, my back tires rubbed because the schmoe I got it from was running too big of tires. After his walk around my car he comes back with this. "I'm deeming your car undrivable, and your wheels illegal. They have rub marks on the sidewall. I had a 3 day safety inspection course and I'm deeming your car undrivable. It must be towed from this spot." After talking to him as calm as possible with him being a dick, I got it all turned into a fixit ticket where I borrowed my buddies wheels and showed him I raised it and got new wheels n tires. My road test to make sure nothing was loose tuned into an hour and a half ride, with a ride back to my dorms in the back of a squad car.
